Macalua has just released a Top Posts By Category Plugin which seems like a great idea that could generate some additional traffic to posts already receiving high traffic.
Hmm, that would be a little bit like what Alister wrote about Knuttz recently.
I am not sure of the easiest way to leverage it.. maybe an invisible category “hot”.
It might also have some use combined with Alister’s Classy Body Plugin so that not only can you have a different look for a category, almost like a seperate blog, but also display the top posts in that section.
Note:- I haven’t tested these plugins yet
